The recently announced Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is already up for pre-order in Germany, though it's been priced at a rather insane 1,000. It turns out, however, that it might actually be that expensive.
Over in China, an employee at the country's biggest carrier used the Weibo microblogging network to post about the Note Edge's price. This will apparently be over CNY 7,000. At the current exchange rates, that equates to $1,139 or 880.
And since 1,000 is technically more than 880, you probably shouldn't expect to see the Note Edge in the 'bargains' category at any retailer.
Interestingly, the aforementioned China Mobile employee later took down his post about the Note Edge, so let's count this whole thing as an unconfirmed rumor for now.
On the other hand, the same individual has since written about the Galaxy Note 4's launch in China. Apparently this is set to go down on September 26, in fact the exact same day on which we've recently heard that the new phablet would become available in South Korea.
China Mobile will reportedly have two versions of the Note 4 on sale. The "regular" N9100 will be priced at CNY 5,399 ($878, 678), but may not support that particular carrier's flavor of 4G. And then there's the N9108, which will work on China Mobile's 4G network, and will cost CNY 5,199 ($846, 653).
That's pretty much in line with what the Galaxy Note 3 went for when it arrived last year - China Mobile sold it for CNY 5,399, while the other carriers asked for CNY 5,799.
Anyway, don't forget to take all of this information with a grain of salt for now, since it comes from just one guy.
